Close to Cornwall’s southwestern tip, cottages in Helford River are located next to a flooded river valley and broad estuary that extends from Mawnan, inland to Gweek. This unusual natural feature serves as an unspoiled holiday destination, perfect for a quiet stay in the countryside, as well as countless water-based activities. Helford river holiday accommodation is often found located on the banks of the estuary, with gardens that reach down to the water’s edge. Holiday home rentals in Helford River are surrounded by an assortment of small, picturesque villages, many of which can be visited via a passenger ferry such as the one that leads the small community at Helford Passage with the Village of Helford. A self-catering cottage in Helford River would be ideal for country walks – the estuary features an array of hidden, glistening creeks encircled by wooded hills, while the various quays found along the banks of the estuary hint at the area’s role as a major port in the 18th Century. To sample authentic Cornish village life, head to Durgan and Constantine, while animal lovers will enjoy the National Seal Sanctuary at Gweek, where adult seals and pups are nursed back to health. Close to Helford River holiday homes is Gillan Creek, which is ideal for sailing and features St Anthony-in-Meneage. The church at this village dates back to the 12th Century and is said to have been founded by shipwrecked Normans. Other must-see areas include Nare Point, the wooded ravine at Trebah, the local industry at Port Navas and the tranquil Frenchman’s Creek. Best Time to Visit Around mid-June, the Sea Shanty Festival in nearby Falmouth is a great way to connect with the area’s maritime heritage, with music and singing at a variety of venues. Reaching Helford River Self-catering cottages and holiday homes in Helford River can be reached via Newquay International Airport on the north shore.
